Ricardo Martins is from Lisbon but at this point, he might as well have learned how to play the drums on fish barrels in São Roque. After coming to play solo (Tremor 2016), with Filho da Mãe (Tremor 2016) and as part of the Pop Dell'arte entourage (Tremor 2018), in 2021 he locked himself up in Ribeira Grande, together with Filho da Mãe and Norberto Lobo for an artistic residency to be performed at Arquipélago - Centro de Artes Contemporâneas, during the pandemic edition of the festival. Hellbent on reminding us that there are some good memories from pandemic times, Ricardo Martins tells us this:

«It was the first concert we had after the COVID restrictions started being lifted. We had been locked at home for months and when we arrived on the island, I felt that I had just arrived in a parallel world. I hadn’t hugged a human being in a long time. And the residency itself contributed to this. We didn’t even leave Ribeira Grande. We had our routine of waking up, going for a swim, and then locking ourselves up and playing for a few long hours. Even the security guard at Arquipélago became our great friend, we talked lot about music, and he told us where to eat. Even though the three of us were very secluded and close-off during the residency, very deep in our heads, composing and thinking about music, when the residency ended, we experienced a very beautiful moment. We finally met with a lot of people we love – Sara Cunha, Joaquim “Fua” Durães, Nuno Biónico, even Kitas and his father. To me, Tremor is a space for moments, not only for musical hugs, but also for hugs between friends.»
